New Year, new blog space and look, although it’s taken me until the end of the month to get my act in gear. Interestingly, I have a spent a majority of January mentally, emotionally and physically shaking off the detritus of 2012. Not to sound pessimistic; but, from my emotional perspective, for the most part, it wasn’t a good year.
It is now time for that time to pass. And here’s a really great way to start:
Also, I have spent the lion’s portion of my creating time on one particular piece which has been getting some good feedback;
I made a dress.
So, first official foray into wearable arts (dress making? textile design?) and whatever you want to call it, it’s done and dusted and I’ve learned about some things to avoid, and I’ve had some ideas about new things to do.
I delivered 3 works into Artslink in Brisbane. From there, they will take a jaunt down to Quilpie for a time, which is really just the start of an extensive regional arts tour. It’s fully booked into 2014, with 2015 open for engagement! Also, watch this space as there will be a number of workshop opportunities I hope to be able to participate in.
Lastly, heartbreakingly, I have never found this, after the mass clean up in the first week of 2013:
An item that vanished from my home under suspicious circumstances about 24 hours after I made it. I can only assume it dropped into a kind of Enid Blyton-esque enchanted world and became sentient. Any other ending for it is too sad.
And that has been a brief run through on January. Thank you for reading it! Hopefully there’s more to come, very soon. What would you like to hear about?
